Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre has been conferred the prestigious Distinguished Patron of the Arts Award 2008 by the National Arts Council.

The annual esteemed award is presented to organizations and individuals who have made significant contributions to the arts scene in Singapore. The Distinguished Patron of the Arts category is the highest honour given for contributions of at least Sin$1.5 million and above.

“We are truly honoured to receive the highest arts award from the National Arts Council for our efforts to help promote and develop the arts in Singapore through our venue. At Suntec Singapore, we have an active CSR (corporate social responsibility) programme that include, amongst many other initiatives, a dynamic support of the arts and the nurturing of creative talents,” said Anjna Nihalani, Director of Marketing & Communications of Suntec Singapore.

The venue was recently in the limelight for its support (as part of Singapore Biennale 2008) towards the artwork of internationally acclaimed artist Deborah Kelly, whose transient projection “Beware of the God” - a message that demanded the pondering of realities and beliefs while encountering a moment of wonder and discovery; was beamed from the roof of Suntec Singapore.

Other notable events the venue will support include the upcoming Noise Festival 2008.

With more than a decade of experience in hosting a myriad of iconic events of diverse nature, the venue has actively been supporting and promoting the arts through close partnership with the National Arts Council. Other art initiatives include being a venue for various art programmes that includes the highly acclaimed ART Singapore, a contemporary art fair held this month that featured the works of 110 art galleries from 16 countries worth over US$30 million.
